Our club anniversary is drawing near and every year on the third Saturday of January, Western Anime Video Explosion hosts a 10 hour long show, sometimes there are games to be played and prizes to be won. This afternoon (WordPress runs on a different time, so this happened on the afternoon of the 20th), the current club president and I went to the only anime store in town to pick up prizes. It’s my second time going to the store, though I wasn’t very helpful at picking out prizes (I suggested getting a Miku plushie, but I’m probably the only few in the club that knows who she is).
It’s my second time visiting that store, during my first I found nothing of interest. This time they’ve got several figures, all for decent price due to the fact that I’m the only active figure collector in town. But no, I didn’t buy any (and no, there were no Saber figures), I did come back with something else though.

As the release date for the movie draws ever closer, yet another promotional video has been released, as if fans outside of Japan aren’t burdened with enough anticipation.

The end of each Comiket means that I’d be getting my bi-annual fix of Type-Moon Complex (a crossover doujin of Fate/Stay Night and Tsukihime). While during my search for the latest (which would be x 06), I ended up running into a post on the SumiSora forms regarding a discussion on Fate/EXTRA, looking a bit deeper revealed some pre-release stuff that the developers have released.

As Saber is definitely making a come back these recent years since the release of the original visual novel in 2004 and the anime in 2006, I was hoping that they’d be releasing a figure of Rider as well…My wish has partly come true, as her figma was spotted in C77.
The Fate franchise has sprung up due to the movie but this is rather strange, because from what I remember Rider has at most two lines in the entire story (and those lines that she mutters is shared with Fate).
The fact that Rider is getting figmatized brings out a pretty big problem for me: I don’t have figma Saber (the armored version or the normal clothed version). By succumbing to this will mean…I’ll have to pick up at least one of the Saber figmas (and most likely end up with both) orz.
Rider is set for release in May of 2010.

We interrupt your boxing day budget planning for another intrution on your well balanced figure get list.
Remember that uncoloured Saber figure we saw during WonFes earlier this year? Well, the production plans are currently underway and we now have a coloured picture of the prototype.

Yeah, things are slowly arriving. This package came from a store that I’m buying from for the first time. BigPfeiffer is a manga store (that sell figures and other stuff as well) stationed in Halifax. Because the store is Canadian, one must factor in the conversion rate between CAD and Yen (right now it’s 1 CAD to 85 yen). On top of that, they do flat rate shipping of 7.5 CAD per order. That’s pretty good considering the size of this thing.
The only problem is that, as the store is based in North America, things get here slower, and there’s also the slight chance that we don’t get enough of said product. This package was actually overdue, not because of the post office or the store. The (one of the) receptionist of my residence building didn’t give me the notice of when the package arrived. I ended up talking way into getting her to check the packages for me, and, as luck would have it, it was there.

The first package I’ve recieved in ages. Once again, it’s one of those “more interesting” that happened these periods of time and it’s also a time for me to not angst over that stupid mistake I made on my organic chemistry exam (it’s the principle dammit! I want to be the 7th person who got perfect *runs away crying*) <- I’m seriously losing it, please ignore.

Once again, it’s not about how good the game is, apparently with these kind of stuff it never is. Even though Fate/Extra have just been recently announced with very few details attached, new figures are already in the making.
Attached to the PSP game bundle will include the new, only briefly seen version of Saber in red. So now, it no longer matters how well the game is designed, it’s all about the figma. I can’t say the marketing strategy isn’t effective *mumbling curses*.
Preview under the cut.
